My journey as a teacher began after I graduated from the University of Houston-Downtown. I began my career as a first grade teacher in 2005. I have served as a Reading Recovery teacher and I have had the pleasure of teaching first, second, and third grades. I also served as a Literacy Coach during my time in education. In 2008, I obtained my Master of Science degree in Teaching from the University of Houston-Downtown. In 2010, I earned my Master of Education degree in Reading and Literacy Instruction and in 2015, I earned my Master of Science degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Houston-Victoria. I have fifteen years of experience as a classroom teacher. I look forward to a wonderful year!
